Symbol of city-one of the largest cathedrals in Europe. Cologne is noted for its university, founded in 1388, and for its churches. The Cologne Cathedral, a magnificent example of the Gothic cathedral in northern Europe, has twin spires, each 157 m high. The cathedral was begun in 1248, but was not completed until 1880; it was restored after sustaining heavy damage in World War II (1939-45). The great bell of the south tower, the Kaiserglocke, cast in 1874 from a French cannon captured in the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71), is one of the largest in the world. The cathedral has been the objective of many pilgrimages, contains the shrine of the Magi, which covers the reputed bones of the three wise men who paid homage to the infant Jesus. Photo by Byungho Yu(#3-5/2004).
